Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Scarab is giving away some games to good people. Inquire within.

Scarab is away in China - of all places - but he left instructions for me to give away a bunch of his stuff before he gets back (he's moving).

    For some reason I get the mental image of The_Scarab coming home from a long trip to find an empty house and screaming "Where the fuck is my shit?"

    Spore would be quite nice, as I haven't played it, but honestly, I would not have the time to play it anyway. Nice idea of yours though :^:

    I was all ready to shoot off a PM for Boom Blox...


    But then I remembered REGION ENCODING. Oh well. I'll be able to find a copy in a bargain bin someplace in New York.

    The Scarab is awesome! He sent me Uncharted 2, admittedly when it arrived I'd already bought it though, so I passed on the good will by giving it to a friend who has:

    a) Lost their job
    b) Just had a child
    c) Is getting married next year

    So they can barely afford food, nevermind games. They were very appreciative. So thank you kind Mr Scarab :)

    I assure you, this is not the case. I am his flatmate and he gave specific instructions before he left.

    If the mods believe this is a scam then I guess they can lock this thread. But I urge them not to. As Mr_Grinch said, Scarab has given away stuff before. He is doing so now. He's moving in with his girlfriend, and the situation arose to give away a bunch of games he will no longer need. It just so happened that he left for Singapore a week ago and when he gets back they're going right into the new flat.

    I would say yes to Killzone 2 but I've already had Uncharted 2, so I'll put my hat in the ring if no-one else wants it :) I don't want to be greedy!

    Remember overseas folk, PS3 games are region free.

    Not to worry. I have no doubt this is on the up-and-up. It's totally the kinda thing The_Scarab would do. But it doesn't stop me from imaging an 80's comedy flick ending to the scenario when everything he owns is gone when he gets back. :)

    The 80s comedy flick scenario here is that all his pre-loaded or pre-ordered games on Steam are coming out while he is out of the country. And his PC is a file server for the building, so it has to be on. So when he gets back, he will somehow, through mysterious elves creeping into our apartment, have a level 45 soldier in Borderlands, a 14 level mage in Dragon Age and three new hats in TF2. <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    Hello. All titles have been claimed. Sorry to those who did not get anything, I had to abide by my first come rule to be fairest.

    Please don't send anymore PMs.
    Thanks for the kind words though.

    Of course some bastard living in bumblefuck, USA had to claim Spore Galactic Edition, which is going to be a whore to ship internationally.

    But as I said, I'll cover all costs, this is a generous giveaway on the internet. A rare thing. Bask in its golden glow.

    Happy Halloween everyone.


    PS: She totally is making him throw away all his stuff. Which fortunately means I get the TV!

    The real important question is: Is Scarab coming back to the forums, or his wife will take even that away from him?

    We're kinda gonna miss him. A bit.

    Man, I'll miss Scarab. He always seemed pretty cool from the few posts I've read of him. Team Old World won't be the same.

    ... They ate, slept and worked. Some of them found uninteresting partners at work who they married and came home to. Sometimes they would half-heartededly thrust into each other and children were made. They lived a middle class existence until their deaths to heart disease and cancer.

    I would organize a search party across seas to find Scarab and kick him in the nuts to remind him they're still his, and make him come back to the forum!

    But nah he's probably away in Scanda-wherever for the moment.

    Coincidentally, when I moved here from PA, I called it 'bum-fuck-nowhere', so its about the same thing. I'd be happy to reimburse the shipping price, just let me know how.

    To be fair, Ozark is a prime example of bum-fuck. Not that I don't like the town, I got family all over that part of Missouri, let's see cousins in Ozark (one of which has been Mayor for awhile), an aunt in Springfield, aunt and uncle in Nixa, etc...I've got deep roots in them there woods.

    Team Old World is our TF2 clan. It consists of two people, me and him.

    Also he is coming back.

    Also Leonius don't fret, not only will I cover shipping but I've already sent it. It wasn't expensive at all. Mainly because while the box is big, and the art book expansive, it doesn't weigh a lot.

    Wow, pretty sure you're the first person in all the years I've frequented these forums that I've seen that lives in KCMO. I had taken the lack of PA KC peoples as a perfect reason why I should leave this place as soon as possible. Admittedly, I'd take just about any reason to leave this place and never look back, though.

    A big bag of parcels to America.

    To those who are receiving, could you swing a PM over this way when it arrives.

    Also, normal Scarab service will resume in a month or so when he gets back.

    That is all. We're done here.
